The integration of environmental concerns into the product design process has highlighted a new problem that arises when confronted with complex systems. Indeed environmental assessment methodologies like Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) become in this case particularly heavy to implement. Considering aluminium electrolysis substations as a complex industrial(More)
An Interactive Genetic Algorithm system is proposed for designing a car silhouette while involving the style designer in the evaluation process of a population of individuals. This IGA is based on the principle of an indirect encoding of a closed curve genome using a primary Fourier decomposition. A crossing over operator is proposed for mixing the parents’(More)
We focus in this paper on the contribution of a subsystem to the environmental impact of a system. In this way we propose to explore some limits related to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), in particular the consideration of the use phase specificities (for example lifetime, technology or energy mix). Two cases studies concerning AREVA T&D’s aluminium(More)
So as to create innovative car silhouettes, we propose in this paper a model based on an Interactive Genetic Algorithm using an encoding of a design solution by a Fourier analysis approach. This model permits the designer to browse through generations of car profiles from an initial population of existing silhouettes. By qualitatively assessing each(More)
The eco-design of complex industrial systems becomes a major issue for the concerned companies. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in particular is more adapted to “classical” products such as consumer goods. Performing LCA of such systems requires some thoughts to ensure significant results, for example concerning data granularity and quality. This article(More)
We propose in this paper a car silhouettes design model based on an Interactive Genetic Algorithm. The design solutions are indirectly encoded by a Fourier analysis approach. Thus after creating an initial population, the designer is able to evaluate himself generations of car profiles, in order to converge towards an individual which meets its(More)
The integration of environmental concerns into the product design process is not trivial when dealing with complex industrial systems. Actually, environmental assessment methodologies like Life Cycle Assessments reach, in this case, methodological and organisational limits. More generally, the complexity inherent in the design process may put off ecodesign(More)

Residents’ usages and behavior play a determining role in the variability of the energy consumption and environmental impact of residential buildings during their use-phase. At present, however, they are inadequately documented and understood, as well as being highly variable. In this paper, we propose a use-phase memory model for residential buildings,(More)
